Paper Pumpkin Play Date – Frights & Delights

October 8, 2020

Getting in to the SPIRIT, I chose the SEPTEMBER 2018 – FRIGHTS & DELIGHTS kit.  This kit featured cellophane treat bags to give to the Ghosts & Goblins that arrive at your door on Hallowe’en! 

Today, I am featuring alternative uses for the cellophane bags.  How about we cut them apart…


The Spider Web bag was cut apart and wrapped around the Mango Melody cardstock.  I chose to use the retired Stone 3D embossing folder on Vellum to create the background mat.  The sentiment is stamped on to Gorgeous Grape and cut with the Stitched Nested Die.  One of the kit’s die-cut Bats was then added.

For the inside, I stamped a few bats and spiders on to a Mango Melody panel to complete the card.


The Spider bag was also cut apart.  I sandwiched it between the Gorgeous Grape Subtle 3D embossed frame and the retired Spider Web embossed Vellum.

The Spider was stamped to the middle of the web with Stazon Black ink.  Stazon ink can be used on non-porous surfaces like plastic, glass and stone.  It is a very versatile product to have at one’s tool box.

I lightly sponged the one of the kit’s die-cut Ghosts with Smoky Slate and added it along with the sticker die-cut “eeeek” to the card front.

For the inside, I used the negative of the Ghost die-cut as a stencil.  The Ghost is sponged in Smoky Slate and I added “eye” holes with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.

Fun cards to make.  BOO!
